The Mauritius IGF 2019 has just ended. Hosted by Halley Movement, the event, sponsored by among others AFRINIC, brought together top Mauritius government officials, law enforcement agents and representatives from the African Union (AU). The event had five sessions:

  1. Setting the pace to combatting online child sexual exploitation in Africa
  2. Cybersecurity Strategies
  3. Artificial Intelligence, fake news: A need for concern
  4. Parental awareness on child online protection
  5. Technological initiatives and Internet governance

AFRINIC staff participated at the just concluded AFPIF-10 Conference held in Mauritius. The event was attended by more than 350 people from across the world. AFRINIC was a sponsor of the event.

AFRINIC offered various speakers, namely Logan Velvindron, Amreesh Phokeer and Keesun Fokeerah. During his presentation, Logan told delegates that IETF work is underway on Explicit Congestion Control. This has gained traction after Apple enabled ECN on its products and their CDN network. Logan went through the ECN and the new extensions and highlighted reasons why operators in Africa should get involved. Logan also explained the works of cyberstorm.mu, and the contribution of the group to IETF hackathons.

The AFRINIC team invites you to participate in another exciting webinar on ‘'How to create an IPv6 deployment project''. During the webinar, we will provide guidelines to help you develop a clear and concise deployment plan.

The objectives of the webinar:

  - Articulate the IPv6 deployment project business plan
  - Identify stakeholders necessary for a successful deployment
  - Take you through the project route, from the beginning to the end
